Patient: Can you catch an STD by touching dry blood? I didnt have any open cuts

 

 

Doctor: Thanks for your question.No, it is not possible, STD germs are specially adapted for living inside or on the human b ody and die rapidly away from the body. They are specially adapted from transmission during intimate and prolonged bodily contact.Hope it helps.Wish you good health.
